Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have had an awful summer and the holidays are not going to be any better. The two have been apart since Khloe booted him out of her house for his inability to control his drug addiction. She gave him plenty of chances to get help, but he couldn’t and wouldn’t do it. How much is one woman supposed to put up with before she throws in the towel? After years of rumors about trouble within the marriage, it looks like things will be coming to a head today. Khloe Kardashian is ready to file for divorce.
Sources say Khloe Kardashian will file the papers sometime Friday afternoon. They have all been drawn up and are ready to be filed. She has remained fairly quiet about her turbulent personal life and has only shown a few cracks in her stoic façade. She isn’t going to come right out and say it, but her tweets show she is a woman in pain who is not willing to be walked all over anymore.
On Thursday, Khloe tweeted a solemn message that seemed to say it all, “I am strong because I've been weak. I am fearless because I've been afraid. I am wise because I've been foolish.” According to TMZ, Khloe Kardashian decided to end it after Lamar Odom’s rap video was posted. In the video, he raps about cheating on Khloe when she was out of town. He is obviously not to be trusted and is going down a path she isn’t willing to follow. She has decided it is time to cut her losses and move on.
The divorce should be fairly short and sweet. She was smart enough to get an ironclad pre-nup. Lamar Odom will walk away with what he had when he came into the marriage and Khloe Kardashian will keep her millions. Since they never had kids, there is nothing to fight over. Khloe’s divorce should be a lot easier and quicker than her big sister Kim’s divorce, which took longer than the actual marriage lasted.
Khloe Kardashian was said to be holding off on actually making her split from Lamar official because she was worried about his health. He is clearly not in a good place and she didn’t want him to OD or do something else equally dangerous or stupid. One insider reveals the divorce has been put off for long enough, but “The end was a long time coming.” That’s for sure. When a marriage is constantly in the spotlight and Lamar struggled with fidelity, it was bound to happen.
Khloe Kardashian seems to be getting a lot of support from her family. Her momager, Kris Jenner also wrote a message to her daughter on her website. The lengthy post includes the words, “You at times, think I'm mean to you, I'm not, I'm merely aware that you may be the strongest woman I know. Sometimes I like to test how strong you are and you always amaze me. I love you!”
The next few weeks will be rough for the lady, but after the smoke clears, things will be better than ever. In the meantime, she will likely lay low and hide out in some posh digs while the divorce storm rages on.
